Sunday December 4th
Millennium Plain (Outside the Forum), Norwich
The Big C have asked ILOVEUKE if we would like to entertain the public with our ukulele students on Sunday 4th December.
We thought it was a great opportunity to show off what we have been learning this term to you, the public and also each other, whilst helping to raise some money for charity at the same time.
Clara and Gemma have been working with each school group on a song or two to perform on the day. The plan is to have a few smaller group performances, and then have everyone play all together at the same time at the end. Sounds like chaos, you're right!!
So that the children can practice at home, Gemma has made a tutorial for the 'Finale' for your child to practice along to at home. The song is Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer, and you can find the video on the bottom of this blog. They won't need music for this.
All your child should need to bring is their ukulele. We will endeavour to tune all the ukes before we play.
Who knows what the weather will be like, so please dress your child accordingly. Playing in gloves is almost impossible, but if they have fingerless gloves, it could be a good time to use them.
Christmas inspired clothes are welcome but feeling warm and comfortable is of most importance!
Although we will try to provide some amplification, the ukes are very quiet instruments (especially when competing with outside noise), so we do ask that the audience is as quiet as possible, especially when the smaller groups are playing as it can be hard to hear them.
Please turn up at 12.45 to give us time to tune all the ukes.
A rough itinerary for the day is as follows (some performances may not go ahead if attendance is low for the smaller groups)
Go Tell Aunt Nancy (duet - Amelie and Lois)
Auld Lang Syne (duet - Amelie and Lois)
Count on Me - Little Melton
8 days a week ( Georgia, Vicky, Gil & Ted)
Strumming Ukulele (Rec Rd, Eaton 2pm group)
We wish you a Merry Christmas (Avenues Tuesday, Eaton 1.30pm group)
Silent Night (Avenues Tuesday, Eaton 1.30 group, Avenues Thursday)
Ukulele for Christmas (Hempnall, Little Melton, Mulbarton Infant, Mulbarton Jnr, Woodside)
We ask that parents stay with the group throughout the session, unless agreed with us in advance.
We look forward to seeing you there! Watch this space for pics from the day!!
